Politics And Society In The South from the Author: Earl Black. "Politics and Society in the South" is a systematic interpretation of the most important national and state tendencies in southern politics since 1920. The authors contend that, notable improvements in race relations notwithstanding, the central tendencies in southern politics are primarily established by the values, beliefs, and objectives of the expanding white urban middle class. This is the crucible for a more competitive two-party politics that is emerging in the South.

African Politics And Society In The 21st Century from the Author: Tyodzua Atim. After more than one hundred years of statehood, most African countries are still facing serious challenges of political instability, low growth, underdevelopment and stagnation. These challenges have created a dysfunctional African society and destroyed the heroic and proud myth of resilience and hard work associated with a typical African. The book has analyzed the trends, and dynamics of the breakdown of family and institutional values, which have necessitated the classification of most African states as failed. While the book is of the opinion that in as much as the relationship between Africa and the West has contributed to the continent's current predicaments, Africa's problems are predominantly, self induced and are traced from the stereotypical culture of lack of idealism. The book has empirically, demonstrated that this culture has hindered initiative and promoted mediocrity, deceit and tyranny on the part of African leadership while the politics of exclusion has promoted the culture of self resignation and fratricidal conflicts on the continent. The book has also proved that the current 'wave' of democratization in Africa particularly, the electoral process as dramatized rituals that seek to legitimate the authority of the ruling class.

Politics And Society In Nigeria S Middlebelt from the Author: Julius Adekunle. The European partition of Africa at the end of the nineteenth century produced enduring geo-political changes, with various ethnic groups permanently separated into different political formations. Borgu was just one of the affected areas, dived by the French and British in 1894 and 1898. Now independent after years of British rule, the Nigerian Borgu is here examined in thorough detail, from earliest times to now. The book focuses on the new emergence of a political identity in the Borgu, as well as its dynasties, economic growth and relations with the Yoruba.
